Looking for some advice please, I'm very new to all this (ampless) so looking to learn and confirm what I have read is correct.
I have a HX Stomp, and would like to use it for live gigs without having to use a guitar amp, so plugging it direct into the PA. From what I have read, the best way to do this is via a Line Isolator (or DI, but better a LI). I have been looking at the Walrus Audio Canvas Mono as it would fit on my board nicely and I have no need for stereo.
Am I correct in saying I can plug the L/Mono output of the HX Stomp into the Input of the Canvas using a regular guitar cable, then plugging an XLR from the out on the Canvas straight into the PA mixing desk?
And if, for example, a venue didn't have any monitors (happens to us sometimes), I could bring my own and plug into it from the Canvas' thru jack so I can hear myself on stage? What type of monitor should I be getting for this? Is there any specific type?
Thanks in advance for any help
